Open Studios at 52 O street Tomorrow

52 O Street Open Studios

Saturday, April 14, 11-5pm
Sunday, April 15, 11-5pm

Open Studios is an annual event that invites the public into the creative spaces of the renowned artist studios at 52 O Street. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore artists’ work spaces, meet a wide variety of artists and arts professionals from a range of backgrounds and disciplines, and to see and purchase artists’ most recent works fresh from the site of creation. Additionally, visitors will enjoy film screenings, a bike clinic, the store at SCRAP-DC, food from local restaurants and vendors, and more events to be announced.

Since its inception as affordable artist studio space in 1978, 52 O Street has been an integral part of the DC arts community. The building provides both living space and creative work space to visual artists, musicians, designers, writers, performers, and more.
